6:47pm
the game. he knows the cowboys game was just a start. >> i'm extrely confident. like coachhanahan said, that was only round one. we're about to be in round two. and i think everybody pretty much kne this. we're only about five, x months in. we're still learning day in and day out. we have practice to do things and get better. i think everything will be fine by the time the rest of the season rolls around. >> we'll change it up. i feel like from a player's standpoint, iis so different this week. i talked to a few of the ys. and after practice we said, wow. he is really spinning. we have so much different stuff in. there is a lot of adjustments to make offensively and i'm sure they'll do thesame thing. i'm sure they know. they have the idea, what we kw. whatever. a chess match. if we're ever going to change it. and we'll go from there. >> i don't know whathe was trying to say but i assume he is
6:48pm
saying, they know us. we know them. we've been trying to figure out who has the advantage. their get on the field them play. >> and we'll see. >> we'll see. >> that will decide it. the latest injury news, albert haynesworth listed as questionable. but he is expected to play in back-up role, according to head coach shanahan. and moore who is back fm knee surgery doubtful so it looks like they will be facing the texans without the starting free safety. the offense, e of the best in the nfl. what about the defense? ast year houston was ranked almost smack dab in the middle of the league in temperature of points allowed. right around 20. last week against the colts, texas mostly had their way with manning and company holding them to ten point. now they face a quarterback in donavan mcnabb who is a bit
6:49pm
different from manning and presentsthem with other problems. >> me myself, i, i hate quarterbacks. th can scramble. they are lying a defensive lineman's worst nightmare. you can get your best rush. no matter how good the rush is, they can evade you, pick up a first down. that's like the baddest thing ever for a defensive lineman. you get a nice clan move and he still breaks free and rush for like 15, 20 yards. and got to get back up and line up again. >> one of the great quarterbacks of the league. he's been to the big game before. he knows how to lead the team. does a great job of moving around in the pocket. scrambling to run the ball. so he does present problems. >> the redskins and texas kick off at 4:15. also, a children's book drive at fed-ex field. there will be collection bins all around the stadium. maryland and wt virginia renewing their football rivalry
6:50pm
this weekend after a couple of years off. and it really hasn't been much of a rivalry lately. the mountaineers he won the last four meetings. west virginia ranked 21st in the country. coming off a squeaker against mashall in which they barely evadedthe upset. maryland improved to 2-0 with a 62-3 win. the terps going into moantown as ten-point underdogs but feeling very good about their chances. maryland coming off a 45-point first half against morgan state. the 62 point they scored are the most the terps have scored in a game since 1975. with two wins already, maurl has matched the win total for last season. now it is a road trip to morgantown where it is never easy to play. >> i think this is another test for us. om a team standpoint. number one, the play on the road and hostile environment against a very good football team. number two is to play in a game.
6:51pm
